This just in from Lakewood’s Planning Department: the City of Lakewood has received a proposal to annex approximately 310 acres of land from the Town of Morrison into the City of Lakewood. This land is located in the southern portion of the Rooney Valley, bordered by West Yale Avenue on the north and Morrison Road to the south, between South Rooney Road on the west and the Tamarisk neighborhood on the east.

The acreage is currently zoned as Planned Development (PD) within Morrison. The petitioner is asking that the land be annexed into Lakewood and rezoned according to Lakewood’s zoning ordinance. Given the proximity to Solterra, the zoning could definitely impact the neighborhood.

The applicant is holding a NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING prior to submitting a formal application, as required by Lakewood law. Neighbors and homeowners associations are encouraged to attend. Information will be provided about the proposed annexation and initial zoning, and there’ll be an opportunity to ask questions of the applicant and Lakewood City staff.

I plan to attend and would love to see other Solterra residents join me.
